in the middle to create something similar but now I have saved your video and want to copy you if you dont mind (im so unoriginal! LOL!) What kind of rock did you use??
I'm planning on getting an BTA after my switchover and a few starter corals. What's easy and beautiful? I've kept anemone but I need something I can't kill easily as far as coral to build my confidence. I'm scurd!
Well I still consider myself a newbie lol. My tank is a little over 9 months old.
For live rock, I got it from my buddy who owns a fish shop. It's cured live rock (Fiji)
And of course I don't mind!
it's a compliment!! Thank you for all the kind words.
As for corals. Under my lighting(AI SOL BLUE) I've good great success with duncans,montis,open brains, all my leathers, mushrooms all kinds, ricordias are just thriving like crazy. Oh and one of my montis is just growing very nicely over this one rock and starting to late outwards.
I didn't have luck with a clam and acroporas. I also lost the sponges too.
So the ones I mentioned in the beginning I'd say ate good hardy corals. I've had most since I started and they made it through a few mistakes lol so I'd bank on those.
Oh and my pulsing xena is doing well also and my zoas are just taking off.
Sorry for the dragged out post.
So I'd say this:
Mushrooms(all colors and hairy mushrooms too)
Ricordias (just be careful they can sting other corals)
Open brain coral
Leathers (like cabbage or finger)
I think those are good choices and can bring some nice color to the tank. If you have the lighting which I think you do since you've had a nem and want another you can do montis and chalice, google both of those and check out the colors on those bad boys.
